is the media choosing to focus on the
death of former Arizona Cardinals safety
Pat Tillman because he played in the NFL?
While I respect what he did, there are
a lot of people who have died fighting
and they deserve some shine too.
Why do we have the same books from 20
years ago in our reading list in most
schools? While Shakespeare’s works
has merit so does Randall Robinson’s
The Debt. In general, we need books to
reflect the diversity of our country.
Why do Africans and African-American have
hostility against each other? We are all
family so we should appreciate each other’s
differences and address the real problems
that affect both cultures.
Why don’t some realize there is
nothing wrong with failing? It is when
you stop trying that you should really
Why do we and the especially the government
allow insurance companies to take the
people’s money for years and the
first time the driver messes up they want
to raise their payments greatly or drop
their coverage completely? We make the
insurance companies and there are people
who have paid for years and never gotten
in an accident! In fact we need a semi
annual reimbursement plan.
Why do some of the fellas look to corrupt
and even impregnate young women before
they are truly grown? This is leaving
young girls everywhere in a shell of woman
and also leaving them with one hell of
Why do some people still talk about a
particular race and/or culture and say
words like yall and they making there
limited experiences apply to everyone
of that particular race or culture? Time
to realize that in order to grow we have
to never forget but give room to grow
and never generalize.
Why are most public schools more of a
baby-sitting clinic than a place of learning?
Dealing with children with a lack of resources
(not right) and respect (unacceptable)
is hard to do while still under the pretense
of trying to educate.
Why are teachers expected to be teachers
and play damage control? That’s
two roles and they hardly get paid for
one. We need more staff in schools and
less missiles and war tanks.
Why are today’s children being taught
to be so oppositional to authority and
challenge everything someone says or demands?
You would think you were asking kids to
do something illegal when you see or hear
their reactions when asked to do something
and/or are told something about themselves.
Not all criticism is bad and if you do
something fess up to it. I see children
rolling their eyes, sucking teeth, mumbling
under their breaths and getting really
disrespectful over the most trivial things.
